squirrels are common in the conifer forest, where seeds from the
cones of jack pine provide lots of food. One squirrel built its home
in an old stump. Another burrowed a hole into the ground. In
both cases, the pile of fresh wood cuttings and seed husks is a tell-tale
sign that the holes are active.
